Childhood Encephalitis Study Day for Professionals

Our Childhood Encephalitis Study Day for Professionals was even more successful than we could have imagined!


We are so grateful to our incredible speakers for giving up their time to present such informative and gripping talks. It was wonderful to see so many people from such different professions all wanting to learn more about Childhood Encephalitis.


The feedback we’ve had has been tremendous – the day has been so important moving forward for the future of a wider understanding and network of support for Childhood Encephalitis and all of those affected.


Everyone in attendance got a copy of our new ‘Getting To Know Childhood Encephalitis’ booklet: it was greatly received – with the booklet now becoming available in GP surgeries, children’s hospitals and schools across the UK! (if you’d like to make these booklets available in your place of work, please contact us!)
